As the evacuation of the tower and its twin got underway, television cameras broadcasted live images of what initially appeared to be a freak accident. Then, 18 minutes after the first plane hit, a second Boeing 767—United Airlines Flight 175—appeared out of the sky, turned sharply toward the World Trade Center, and sliced into the south tower at about the 60th floor.  America was under attack

PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU –  May you know blessing when you have been misjudged or when your words or intentions have been misconstrued or mistaken. May you settle into that place within you that is filled with truth and authenticity and may you find there your true intent and your most authentic meaning. May you also find the words that will transform perceptions and invite reconciliation among those who people your life. May the God of Authenticity bless you. –Maxine Shonk, OP
